Details

In the still not so well known wine region of Valencia, the Celler del Roure winery, headed by winemaker Pablo Calatayud, is pioneering the recovery of long-forgotten indigenous grape varieties, such as the red Mandó and the white Verdil.

Partially made from this hitherto unknown grape, Cullerot is a Spanish white wine that also includes Pedro Ximénez, Chardonnay, Macabeo, Malvasía and other little-known native varieties, such as Merseguera and Tortosí.

Handpicked, carefully selected and destemmed, the grapes were separately vinified.

First, 80% of them were gently crushed, while the other 20% were macerated with their skins for 5 days. Alcoholic fermentation took place in buried clay amphorae and stainless steel tanks, always in contact with the lees. The wine was blended before finishing fermentation and then aged for 5 months.

After that, Cullerot 2017 was racked and aged, put back into the amphorae and aged for a further 6 months before its bottling.

Production of 24,000 bottles. Drink over the next 4 years.

Additional Information

Appearance

The white wine Cullerot has a clean, bright, yellow colour with golden tinges.

Nose

Fresh notes of white fruit, along with notions of white flowers and herbs. This interesting white wine from Valencia also suggests some remembrances of garrigue over a subtle mineral background.

Palate

Fresh and savoury, but with a slightly unctuous, creamy feeling due to the lees ageing. This white wine by Celler del Roure has a good balance between the fruity notes and the floral and mineral notions. Crisp acidity and long finish with pleasant remembrances of citrus.

Our personal opinion

Highly characteristic, made from some unknown varieties, Cullerot 2017 really deserves a try.

    I like this wine. Quite original, with an interestingly bitter twist.

  2. CUllerot review by Seinfeld on 10/24/2017

    Very interesting white wine from Valencia, made from some indigenous grapes I knew nothing about. Straightforward and yummy, with a Mediterranean flair but without overripeness.
